My Approach to Helping
At the heart of the way I practice, therapy is the high value I place on my clients as people who are much more than their "issue" or the current struggle which may bring them to therapy. This lens influences the way the way I interact with you and help you engage in the therapeutic process so that together we can begin to see the movement, growth, healing, and insight you are after--in your life and with the specific issues(s) which bring you to counseling. The client-therapist relationship is of utmost importance to me and, because of that, I think you will find me warm, engaging, empathetic and appropriately challenging as I listen to the stories of who you are and what concerns you most.
I work with individuals and couples of all backgrounds and ages (adolescent & up). I would consider it a real privilege to come alongside you during this time in your life which has you exploring therapy, recognizing that it is a sacred space into which you invite me. I hope and trust the space and the client-therapist relationship I would form with you would feel warm, accepting and genuine. I believe engaging in the therapeutic process is one of the most courageous steps a person can take; I would welcome and be honored to share in part of your journey. Many people aren't quite sure how to find a counselor that is a good fit for them-- and I'm happy to talk through that process with you.
